David West (sprained left ankle) is available to play in Game 3 on Thursday.
West turned his ankle while landing on LaMarcus Aldridge's foot during Game 2, but the injury won't cost him any time. Even at full strength, though, West isn't a compelling DFS option. Apr 18 - 8:19 PM

Date:

David West came down on the foot of LaMarcus Aldridge in the fourth quarter on Monday and left the game with a sprained left ankle, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and a block in 14 minutes.

He was in a lot of pain and went to the locker room, but ran back out to the bench shortly thereafter. He didn't return, as the Warriors didn't need him down the stretch, and he'll be questionable for Game 3 on Thursday in San Antonio. West isn't really a fantasy factor, but he is a key bench player for the Warriors.
Apr 17 - 12:58 AM

David West scored five points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 16 minutes during his return on Friday against the Kings.

The Warriors used West as a ball-handler with some high-low action, and that'll probably continue because of how thin they are. Still, his minutes are going to be capped, which means he's not an add in most leagues.
Mar 17 - 1:05 AM

Coach Steve Kerr said that David West (arm) will be available to play Friday vs. the Kings.

West will return to the lineup after missing five consecutive games. Draymond Green (shoulder) will also return to action on Friday. JaVale McGee and Zaza Pachulia will see their playing time scaled back. West will likely log his usual 14-15 minutes on Friday.
Mar 16 - 12:50 PM

David West (arm) is probable for Friday against the Kings.

He was expected to play back on Wednesday, and the Warriors will finally have some depth up front. JaVale McGee has done a fine job with added minutes and Zaza Pachulia had a good game on Wednesday, so they take a hit.
Mar 15 - 3:28 PM

David West (arm) is targeting a return vs. the Kings on Friday.

West will have missed about 10 days if he does return vs. the Kings. There might be some rust but he'll be welcomed back with open arms in light of the Warriors' ongoing injury concerns, which includes Draymond Green (shoulder).
Mar 14 - 9:03 PM

David West (arm) won't play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

We're assuming that West is still day-to-day, but he's been out over a week and Golden State hasn't pegged a potential return date. With Draymond Green (shoulder) also out on Wednesday, they'll be turning to the reserves early and often.
Mar 13 - 8:29 PM

David West (arm) will not play on Sunday against the Wolves.

That means he's out for a week with this injury. There isn't much talk on the severity after it was initially called minor. JaVale McGee has really stepped up while West has been out.
Mar 10 - 6:10 PM

David West (arm) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

The Warriors are playing it safe with West, and they'll be rolling with JaVale McGee and Kevon Looney at center.
Mar 9 - 3:43 PM

David West (arm) will not play against the Spurs on Thursday.

The injury doesn't sound serious and maybe the back-to-back set is a factor. With West out, JaVale McGee will get the start and Kevon Looney will back him up.
Mar 8 - 8:49 PM

David West (right arm cyst) is doubtful for Thursday against the Spurs.

The injury doesn't sound serious and some reports were calling it rest yesterday. With him and Jordan Bell hurting, JaVale McGee and Kevon Looney should handle most of the center minutes.
Mar 7 - 4:48 PM

David West has a cyst on his right arm and will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

In other words, the Warriors are resting the veteran forward. Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney are the candidates to pick up a few extra minutes.

Mar 6 - 9:39 PM

David West ended up Saturday's 122-105 win against the Spurs with 14 points, four rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot over 17 minutes off the bench.

West was a very efficient 6-of-6 from the field, as he picked up the slack with Kevin Durant struggling a bit with his shot. Head coach Steve Kerr might have leaned upon West even more if he weren't in foul trouble for most of the evening. Despite the fact that he saved Golden State's bacon for the second time this week, his fantasy appeal remains rather minimal.
Feb 10 - 11:55 PM

David West scored 10 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 17 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He was huge off the bench and he saved the day after the Warriors were very, very sloppy. West still doesn't have much fantasy value.
Feb 9 - 1:07 AM

David West (calf) is probable to play Thursday vs. Dallas.

Probable generally means "will play" in Golden State, and we should get official confirmation on his status following Thursday morning's shootaround. Even if West is cleared to play, he might not be on the floor that much for a matchup against the worst team out West.
